We need EI reform now

The pandemic has had a significant impact on our economy. We’ve seen millions of jobs lost, workers seeing hours reduced, or major changes to their work environment.

Luckily, programs like Employment Insurance (EI) have helped many affected workers keep up with bills and put food on their tables. However, without swift action by parliament, many of these workers will see their EI coverage disappear by the end of March.

Ottawa is debating a bill (C-24), which would extend EI benefits by another 24 weeks. Tweet your Member of Parliament to tell them to support workers urgently by swiftly passing Bill C-24 and to overhaul the EI system to ensure it protects workers when they need it in the future.

We’ve drafted the tweet for you. All you have to do is hit TWEET.
